    1General Information Introduction This manual provides general information, hardware preparation and installation instructions, removal/replacement procedures, operating instructions, and support information for the XR900 series SCSI standalone peripheral expansion enclosure. Throughout the rest of this manual, this enclosure may be referred to as the XR900, or simply as the enclosure.

  • Page 13: Xr900 Enclosure

    General Information XR900 Enclosure For base chassis that have no built-in drive bays (e.g., the 20- and dual 9-slot versions) or for applications that require additional storage capacity in a mix of 5 -inch and 3 -inch drives, integral and standalone SCSI peripheral expansion enclosures are available. The integral enclosure is described in the Modular VME System Chassis User’s Manual.

  • Page 14: Expansion Chassis

    General Description data transfers and control processes, including the switching of the XR900 power supply on and off, occur under the control of the host computer. In applications involving a dual 9-slot system (Modular Note Chassis model MC1209), the XR900 chassis serves one side or the other, but not both at once.

    Hardware Preparation and Installation 4. Remove the side and back panels of the rack as necessary to gain access to the interior for chassis installation. The next two steps are a two-person operation. Caution 5. Position the chassis in the selected rack bay or mast location and align the slots in the chassis flanges with the corresponding holes in the frame rails of the rack or mast.

    Power Supply Limit Considerations 3. Assemble the clam-shell connector housing around the terminal block as shown in Figure 2-6. Secure a length of Tyrap around the housing to reinforce the assembly. 4. Plug the assembled connector into the DC power inlet located on the upper back panel of the XR900.

  • Page 33: Chassis Cooling Considerations

    Hardware Preparation and Installation Chassis Cooling Considerations It is essential that all modules used in the system be properly cooled. The following information is supplied to help determine whether the cooling is adequate. Modular Chassis equipment, including the XR900 chassis, is designed for an input air temperature below 50 C (122 F).

  • Page 34: Controls And Indicators

    XR900 chassis) turns on when the temperature sensor in the enclosure is not adequately cooled. At that point, Motorola-supported SCSI devices in the XR900 (and most other SCSI devices) are approaching their upper temperature limits but are not in danger of immediate damage.

  • Page 35: Environmental Monitor

    Operating Instructions Environmental Monitor An environmental monitoring function to track enclosure temperatures and operating voltages is incorporated into the Modular Chassis system design. The extent of coverage can be specified when the equipment is ordered. In the Modular Chassis, power supply outputs and temperatures are always monitored.

  • Page 36: Power Supplies

    VMEbus ACFAIL and the affected power supply is shut down automatically. At the lower threshold, Motorola-supported SCSI devices in the XR900 enclosure and most other SCSI devices are approaching their upper temperature limits but are not in danger of immediate damage.

  • Page 37: Other Subassemblies

    Operating Instructions Other Subassemblies In other parts of the system, temperature sensors provide only the lower threshold warning. As with power supplies, a heat buildup beyond the first threshold within a monitored subassembly illuminates the warning LED on the front of the Modular Chassis. If temperatures climb further, however, no power shutdown occurs.

  • Page 38: Recovery

    Operating Procedures Recovery The surest way to reset the power distribution system after a shutdown triggered by the environmental monitor is to cycle the primary power (remove and reconnect the –48Vdc or 115/230Vac input power). In systems with a redundant power supply, setting the key switch on the Modular Chassis to and back to after a thermal...

  • Page 39

    Operating Instructions If the power switch is in the position when the line Note cord is connected to a power source, the outputs of the Modular Chassis power supply cycle on immediately. 3. Verify that the Modular Chassis and the XR900 have been connected to a –48Vdc or 115/230Vac input power source (as appropriate to the installation and system configuration).

  • Page 40: Xr900 Power Control

    Operating Procedures XR900 Power Control When the AC or DC power cord is attached at the upper left rear corner of the chassis and connected to an appropriate power source, DC power within the enclosure is controlled during normal operation through SCSI terminator power. When the host (the Modular Chassis) is powered up, the XR900 detects the presence of signal and powers itself up in response.

  • Page 41: Remote Interface

    Operating Instructions Remote interface The remote interface is designed to interconnect with an environmental monitor I/O port on the host computer. Each pin connection, signal mnemonic, and signal characteristic for the connector is listed in the following table. Table 3-1.

  • Page 42: Recommended Power-off Procedure

    Operating Procedures Recommended Power-Off Procedure As described in the previous section, the XR900 has no power switch. The power supply cycles on and off under the control of the host computer. Powering down the Modular Chassis also powers down the XR900 chassis. Note Ensure that proper software shutdown procedures have been followed before you continue.

    Removal/Replacement Procedures Side Panel/Pedestal Cover The Modular Chassis pedestal configuration incorporates side panels for the various system enclosures (including the XR900 chassis) and a pedestal cover. The inner surfaces of the panels and cover are molded with slots that engage slide hooks mounted on the corresponding enclosure.

    Side Panel/Pedestal Cover 11064.00 9503 Figure 4-2. Side Panel Removal Pedestal Cover Removal/Replacement The pedestal cover is mounted with the same type of hardware as the side panels, but no latch is used. Instead, two screws on the back edge near the corners hold the cover in place. The removal procedure consists of simply removing the screws, then sliding the cover backward and disengaging it from the slide hooks.

  • Page 49: Power Supply

    Removal/Replacement Procedures Power Supply The power supply module (Figure 5-3) is installed at the right side of the drive bays in the XR900 chassis. The power supply receives –48Vdc or 115/230Vac input power directly through its back panel. The power supply outputs are cabled to the cooling fan and to a backplane connector, which applies operating voltages from the power supply to the mass storage modules.
